MarkBrannan Posted February 15, 2012 Share Posted February 15, 2012 I am having great difficulties installing Paint.NET on my laptop (running Vista). I had Paint.NET installed around 6 months ago, but it crashed one day, and I was unable to uninstall it, so I deleted all of the program files and tried to install over it - to no avail. Each time I try to install I get a clr20r3 error with a System.IO.FileNotFoundException with another one of the lines pointing to the mscorlib. I have tried every possible solution available online: All of the tips in the Paint.NET installation trouble forum post Completely removing the .NET framework then reinstalling Rebooting in safe mode and trying to install Rebooting in VGA mode and trying to install Rebooting with no startup components and trying to install Trying to install under a different user account Using the windows installer cleanup utility (no dialogue windows seems to come up where I can select what I want to cleanup) Various .NET repairs from the control panel Updating Windows and all .NET frameworks I have posted this problem in Microsoft's answers forum, but they have given up and suggested that I post it here (which I avoided I the first place, as I had found no solutions to similar problems here). Can anybody help me with this problem? I really want to get Paint.NET back up and running as all other image editors are nowhere near as good. Thanks.
